Audi Quattro Turbo
In March 1980 the Audi quattro was first shown at the Geneva Motor show and caused a sensation, today this 80’s classic is a legend.
Permanent four wheel drive a turbo charged fuel injected engine and an awful lot of fun.
About 11,000 thousand cars were built making it a rare car. The cars were not built on a production line, each car was hand built and this continued right to the end, the last car going straight into Audi’s museum by which time in 1991 they were being sold for £32,000
It was not until 1981 when the first quattro’s appeared in the UK originally in LHD only. By the end of 1982 Audi started to build RHD versions of the car.
The car will always be best known for it domination in world rallying but a recent TV series “Ashes to Ashes” has brought the car to the public attention again.
Vintage Classics RHD red Audi quattro turbo is very similar to the car used by Gene Hunt in the TV series and being an 80’s classic is as easy to drive as a modern car, just a lot more fun and a lot more stylish. The four wheel drive system took road holding to a new level.
Although you cannot use the car for rallying you can be Gene Hunt for the day, “Fire up the quattro” and explore the Wiltshire countryside with scenic routes into the Cotswolds this car will give you a day to remember. Or just realise a childhood dream and drive one of the greatest cars of its time.
A four/five seater with seatbelts front and rear and a slightly small but reasonable sized boot makes this an ideal car to hire if you are looking for a family day out.
The minimum age for drivers is 30.
“All hail the quattro”
